Sequin Boys--Dazzling creations from Season 17 Bravo's "Project Runway" designers (L to R) Venny Etienne, Jamall Osterholm, Garo Sparo, Bishme Cromartie, Jhoan "Sebastian" Grey

Recently on the new-and-improved "Project Runway" on Bravo, the Challenge was to design and create looks inspired by the new movie "Rocketman" based on Elton John's life. The designers had to create a fashionable stage-worthy costume that would fit in perfectly with the movie and vibe THE MAN...THE LEGEND....Sir Elton John, and all his fabulousness. Being that it was a MENSWEAR challenge, male models were brought in to model the creations...

The designers did a FANTASTIC job coming up with dazzling looks ranging from an "Intergalactic Sequined Rocketman", "Denim and Crystals Cowboy", "Avant-garde Zebra-printed High Fashion", to an angel-winged "Elvis"-like Stud...

As a Consulting Producer on the show, I had the privilege of taking care of the amazing costumes from Costume Designer Julian Day (also known for his "Bohemian Rhapsody" costumes, among other credits) that were shipped to our set to be displayed as inspiration for the "Project Runway" designers. I treated them like priceless gems and was especially honored to meet Mr. Day and organize and style the looks along with him. Here are some Behind-the-scenes photos from my time as a working "fly on the wall"...

First, here is Mr. Julian Day and his actual Costumes for the movie "Rocketman":
